Dutch artist Rob van Hoesel has photographed all 35 Belgian highways from the passenger seat of his old Opel Corsa. Holland’s southern neighbour Belgium has always been a transit country for Van Hoesel, being the first ‘abroad’ on the route towards France, Spain, Italy or other exciting holiday destinations. For this book Van Hoesel made a selection of 1,000 images from the total amount of 3,000 that he shot during his trips. They are structured according to the road numbers of the individual highways, and supplied with additional information.
